Manual Wood Chipper (ENGR 110, Spring 2014)
Students: Brendan Taylor, Evan Stillings
Advisor: Geetha Arun
The purpose of the project was to investigate if a human can power a wood chipper by solely using mechanical systems. Throughout the research, the students found that such a device would have many problems involved in its operation. These faults ultimately led to the conclusion that such a device would be expensive and theoretically improbable for a human to achieve.
